The Incarna downloader is taking several times longer than indicated on the program. My download rate goes at 400 Kbs a second, yet it takes a minute to download a couple of mbs. Not only is your service substandard, but also your product.

Hate to break it to you, but thats on your end, took me 5 minutes to download it, and Im in Alaska.. Though I had an issue with the actually patching process.

Worked fine for me.
You should try harder.

Sounds like your Antivirus is being a bit troublesome. It's probably scanning as you download and thus ****ing up the downloader.

Its not the downloader that sucks, its te WHOLE "auto"patcher that is
-not automatic at all
-downloads 7zipped files that have to be unzipped on the C drive, so if you have 1 GB patch it takes >2GB of C drive.
-doesnt use modern technologies

Compare that to World of tanks - I start the game, loader patches with DELTA files in the BACKGROUND using bittorrent protocol, game is ready to play.


edit:
actually it doesnt

"downloads 7zipped files that have to be unzipped on the C drive, so if you have 1 GB patch it takes >2GB of C drive."


what it does is

-download self extracting archive in an exe file into C

-extracts 7zip archive from self extacting archive into C

-extracts *.RTP file from 7zip fire into C AGAIN

-patches the game


This is sad, it had to be implemented by intern working for free :/
